At the Rochdale Business Awards, Daniel Shackleton and Stephen Grindrod were named jointly as Businessman of the Year.

Almost 300 people attended the awards at Rochdale Town Hall on Friday 2nd November.

Guests from businesses across the borough enjoyed a champagne reception and casino before moving into the Great Hall for a meal and a glamorous awards ceremony.

The event – dubbed the Oscars of the Rochdale business world – was organised to recognise and celebrate the achievements of businesses in the borough. It is expected to have raised in the region of £3,000 for Springhill Hospice.

Salt Separation Services have recently been awarded a contract for the design, manufacture and commissioning of the Potable Water Package for the ATP Cheviot project.

The equipment will be capable of producing 1.1 m3/h of potable water and 0.75 m3/h of demineralised water from seawater.

The contract with COSCO (Nantong) Shipyard, China, was awarded after a competitive tendering exercise and is worth around US $1M.

This marks Salt Separation Services first ever export to China and is the first package that they have supplied for a new offshore installation, all previous work in this sector having been retrofits for existing platforms.

The ATP Cheviot platform is a floating facility and will be installed offshore in the UK sector of the North Sea, east of the Shetland Isles.

Salt Separation Services is a privately owned SME based in Rochdale, specialising in the design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and servicing of water treatment plant, specifically reverse osmosis desalination equipment, in the marine, offshore, naval, water and process industries.

Safe Contractor ApprovedSalt Separation Services Ltd is one of the latest group of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record.

Salt Separation Services Ltd recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors.

The company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. 

SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

Under the SAFEcontractor system, businesses undergo a vetting process, which examines health and safety procedures and their tract record for safe practice.

Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website

Employer-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, which enables them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These employers agree that, as users f the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation. 

Over one hundred and twenty major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.

Salt Separation Services have recently been awarded a contract for a further two containerised 120 m3/d RO desalination plants for Ascension Island.

The contract, from the BBC World Service, was awarded almost two years after the original two plants were commissioned.

The plants, which  are fitted with energy recovery devices to reduce absorbed power, will eventually replace the existing distillation plants that have reached the end of their serviceable life

In July 2009, Salt Separation Services were awarded a contract for a 400 m3/dseawater Reverse Osmosis (RO) desalination plants for installation on-board the cruise ship Crystal Symphony.

The plant will include an energy recovery device to reduce the overall cost of producing fresh water by reducing energy requirements in the order of 30 to 40%.


It is anticipated that installation on-board Crystal Symphony will commence in April 2010.

For a record 14th year, Crystal Cruises has been voted “World’s Best Large-Ship Cruise Line” by the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine.  The ultra-luxury line is the only cruise line, resort or hotel to have won the prestigious award each year since the awards’ inception.
